"Happy Fall Equinox!" one of my friends from Whole Foods says today.
I can't believe fall is actually here and we have to say goodbye to summer, I tell her.
We decide we'll just keep moving.
Keep moving, or you'll get run over. That's all you can do.
I don't even know how that applies to summer and fall, changes and when we want to hold onto things that can be hard to let go of, but I decide it's worth a try.
Summer and I, we were an unfamiliar pair this year. Even if I've been begging for change, it seems it's never long until I want to be back in the middle of warmth and familiarity, even the unfamiliar-familiar of this year. Summer always seems better than the cool of the fall, the newness I'm not quite ready for. I choose to believe there are good things to come, even if these are unknown things.
I'm sending you off summer with a group of pictures to remember your free spiritedness. To remind me of what is light and hopeful. I hope you still remain in some way.
We had a creative festival outside last weekend and people were drawing on the streets in sidewalk chalk. Pretty amazing!
Your average cd tree...
Did I mention I was trying to put my lifelong dream of being in the circus into action?
Where's Waldo note to readers: no, I am not in this picture
Flashback note to readers: remember when I kinda sorta talked about a circus wedding (only kidding?). Just reminding you of all the fun times you can have at a circus/carnival.
Remember when I said I have a twin who is a professional hula hooper? Okay, not a real twin, but perhaps. I'm not kidding that it might be an awesome next career path.
The friend I was with tried to get me to juggle make-up because I told her juggling is my favorite.
No, I am not in this picture either. I just observed but I did go home and practice juggling. True story. Juggling is seriously my favorite.
(Since I didn't have a picture of juggling, this picture has nothing to do with this caption. Plus, I can't even explain this picture.. or this whole event actually...)
This is just a pretty photo of downtown in summer. Because I am not always at the circus.
But I do wear (other people's) shades because that sun is shiny, yo.
And, a reminder of my family and candid pictures and grandmas who like to talk as much as me..
I'm not of the selfie-love but my friend's sweet three-year-old loves airplanes so I had to take a picture on board because I'm "his best friend." Maybe it's the juggling?
